CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- Miss Virginia Volunteer contestants served the community for “We Serve Day."

In Charlottesville, contestants served the Ronald McDonald House by baking some good food for the families currently staying in the home. 

One volunteer shared that her family stayed in a Ronald McDonald House when her cousin was sick and now it’s a full circle moment giving back. 

“Her family, my family was always in and out of the hospital and Ronald McDonald House always housed them. They’ve been nothing but just a huge support and very kind and it’s always been a wonderful organization and near and dear to my heart,” said Lindsey Owens, a former Miss Virginia Volunteer Contestant.

Owens says this day is about giving back to the organizations that impact the people in our communities across Virginia.
